First let me say that this fortunate event about to happen to me in no way changes my opinion or passions stated in 1st Life Post a few weeks ago. Not much time so I must keep it short, wanted to tell those of you who hadn’t heard..A few weeks ago I found out about got into a program like this (with my Brother who wanted to Donor but is not a match for me) http://transplants.ucla.edu/body.cfm?id=112&oTopID=34 . If you take a quick look youll understand how it works. Basically my Brother will be exchange kidney with a match for me and be giving his to a patient who also has a donor that doesn’t match them but matches me. All 4 matches and agreement and arrangements t0 exchange were made this past Tuesday the 17th ! So I have a high match type Donor. Monday is surgery.
In a little while I will get to meet this “Living Donor” and thank her beforehand for what she is doing.. for me and her loved one. I cant imagine the emotions were all going to feel.. I’m overwhelmed thinking about it now. 🙂 I have 6 family members with me now and I’m ready for this.. My brother says No big deal for him just a little slice here and there and hes done. I could be there 3 days or 3 weeks.. dont know yet.. but hope my body doesnt reject and its not too long . Tracey made a twitter update thing cause I was asking her to use mine to update you guys and she didnt want to so here it is.. DWkidneyupdate. I hope she doesnt tweet you too much. 🙂
Oh and one last thing.. if for some reason it goes horribly wrong like accidental giving me too much anesthesia or whatever and I don’t come back. You know who you are.. I love and cherish my closest friends and colleuges in SL. Keep doing what you do best and don’t forget to have fun doing it. 🙂 And Paisley I still want to be on TL to talk about Live n Kickin! Yep Ill be back I have many missions including more Donor awareness to complete still. https://delindasdiary.wordpress.com/2009/10/21/1st-life/
